While itâ€™s not called shop anymore; itâ€™s career/technical education or industrial technology these days, this 1965 Cobra GT replica is the modern product of one such class. Auto Tech students at Bridgeport High School in Bridgeport, Texas built this car with professional guidance from the classic car industry, minus the powertrain, tires and wheel, and the students finished it just this year!The car has a white vinyl ester resin body in a hand-laid, tri-axial pattern with burgundy racing stripes. Vinyl ester is stronger, lighter, more flexible and less likely to delaminate and resist blistering. The paint, trim, windshield, side wings and lights are all in excellent condition. The engine bay is very tidy, the cargo area is in very good order and has an Optima battery back there. This little rocket rolls on Nitto NT 555 Extreme ZR tires, size 275/40ZR17 in front and wide 315/35ZR17 in back. Each tire is mounted on an alloy American Racing Wheel with black trim. The wheels are new, and the tires are in very good shape. This version sports a four-inch longer wheelbase than the original, which was 90 inches.Under the hood is a 302 CID V-8 engine built by Performance Unlimited from Melbourne, Florida. This engine puts out 345 horsepower and 349 lbs-ft of torque. The engine features dual side-exit exhausts. A Tremec T-5 five-speed manual transmission is the engineâ€™s dance partner, along with a Moser nine-inch rear end. The car features Wilwood disc brakes, coil over front and rear suspension, along with A-arms in front and a four-link setup in back. Inside are black, hand-stitched seats vinyl bucket seats complete with SJR Racing Harnesses. They give good lumbar and lateral support. The seats and complementing black, cut-pile carpeting are new. These seats are four inches lower than in the original model. A Grant GT four-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a tiltable column and is ready for the open road while the black instrument panel is replete with VDO gauges, including a digital odometer. The transmission tunnel has been narrowed, giving more length and width in the footbox and the doors are wider.The bigger footbox offers better pedal placement and gives the car a roomier and more comfortable cockpit. The door liners feature map pockets on the inside, thereâ€™s a decently sized glovebox and a driverâ€™s side roll bar. A floor-mounted shift lever rises from the center console but thereâ€™s no radio. Any reservations you might have about this car coming from a high school will evaporate after a turn of the ignition key, the build is truly professional and the students should be damn proud for their hard work! The engine fires up obediently and the exhaust rumble is satisfying.Cobras always attract attention and this one will be no different.
